Sherry made everyone that she came in contact with feel relaxed. Nothing seemed to ruffle her calm demeanor. She loved to  read and collect Harlequin romance novels. Sherry has a beautiful smile. Even though she was quiet, she was very much a social butterfly. She enjoyed attended festivals, concerts, plays, museums, parades, and traveling. Sherry also enjoyed baking and needlepoint.
